Expert Answer

Step 1

A balanced chemical equation or reaction is the one in which the total number of atoms for each element in the reactant side (left hand side) is equal to the total number of atoms for each element in the product side (right hand side).

The balanced equation for the synthesis of cryolite can be written as:

Al2O3 (s) + 6 NAOH (1) + 12 HF (g) → 2 Na3AlF6 + 9 H2O (g)

Step 2

Given,

Mass of Al2O3 = 15.6 kg = 15600 g     (1 kg = 1000 g)

Mass of NaOH = 57.4 kg = 57400 g

Mass of HF = 57.4 kg = 57400 g

Moles of Al2O3 , NaOH and HF can be calculated as:

Molar mass of Al2O3= (2×27) + (3×16) = 102 g/mol Molar mass of NaOH= 23 + 16 + 1 = 40 g/mol Molar mass of HF = 1 + 19 = 20 g/mol 15600 g Mass = 152.94 mol Moles of Al2O3 Molar mass 102 g/mol 57400 g Mass 1435 mol Moles of NaOH Molar mass 40 g/mol 57400 g Mass Moles of HF 2870 mol Molar mass 20 g/mol

Step 3

The reaction is :

Al2O3 (s) + 6 NaOH (l) + 12 HF (g) ⟶ 2 Na3AlF6 + 9 H2O (g)

Stoichiometric molar ratio of Al2O3 : NaOH : HF = 1 : 6 : 12

Actual molar ratio of Al2O3 : NaOH : HF = 152.94 : 1435 : 2870 = 1 : 9.4 : 18.8

Therefore, NaOH and HF are the excess re...
